Interesting video of a day in the life of a Projectionist. Projectionists working on a 3 platter system, as well as a Digital system. There is also a five platter system (not shown) which, typically can run two different theater, at the same time. The term “Breaking Up” is commonly referred to as “Breaking Down” a film, is as the name implies. “Building” is putting a show together. Digital shows are also put together, but in a computerized format. Projectionists work long hours into the night, mostly in solitude. It’s a tough job, depending on how many screens you have and the condition of the equipment. I enjoyed the video, thanks!

marcystarnes you are so right. The theatre I worked at I wish I had that nice of a room. I worked with and historic one screen and the rooom was just big enough for me and the machines and equipment. Two people was a crowd. We ran two machines with big reels and one change over. It was a lot of fun.
